Project Report | Feb 27, 2017
Over 1,000 surgeries provided at outreaches in India

By Beth O'Grady | Operations Specialist

Two outreaches were held at the end of 2016 in India. Four days were spent in Mangarh, where a total of 723 cataract surgeries were completed, and two days were spent in Vindraban, where 359 surgeries were completed. The outreach was organized by the Himalayan Cataract Project, Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology, and JGK Mangarh and Vindraban.

Since 2004, the Himalayan Cataract Project and our flagship partner in Kathmandu, Nepal, the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology, have treated over 200,000 patients and provided over 24,000 sight-restoring surgeries in Northern India.

The Himalayan Cataract Project and Tilganga have drastically improved eye care by creating a proven eye care model worthy of worldwide replication. Our top priority is to reach the greatest number of unserved blind people, with the highest quality care at the lowest cost possible.

More outreach events are planned throughout the coming months and we look forward to sharing more photos and stories from the field!
